Located in Besant Nagar, it’s impossible not to notice the two-story Maal Gaadi stone building (raw but classy). As you enter through the large wooden doors of this concept store, you would feel like you've entered a colour poppin’ paradise. What greets you is a quirky cart filled with goodies like gorgeous, so-not-your-everyday jewellery and shoes fit for a lady boss. We found these cool Silver and Neon Pointed Heels by a.k.a bespoke that left us curious enough to explore all that this store has on offer.
The ground floor houses a host of things including quirky apparel. Take your pick from brands such as Soup by Sougat Paul, Urbane Label (winning for funky cowl maxis and draped skirts), and fun, contemporary designs by Nida Mahmood. You can shop designers like Gargi Guptha and Siddharth Vansal at Maal Gaadi. We also found bow ties and luscious shampoo bars from Neemli and sweet-smelling pillow mists by Hedonista to pick from.
On the floor above, we spotted fun posters (the Shiva Pop Art by Art Lab is our pick), a few hilariously named sunglasses (we tried the Mr. Lova Lova or Iron Man’s Junk by Go Spiff) and more. The store’s inventory is curated by designer duo Shreya Kamalia and Vivek Karunakaran and inspired by travel and fashion. Featuring over 85 Indian brands, you can easily find a lot of quirky Indie merch at Maal Gaadi, and can expect the collection to keep changing with every visit.
